Bovada Poker is offering players the opportunity to win an “all-expenses-paid” trip for two to Las Vegas plus thousands of dollars in cash prizes and tournament entry tickets, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning a prize is place a bet on any World Cup soccer match before July 7th.
Whereas many poker sites are currently running either Las Vegas-themed promotions or World Cup-themed promotions, the USA friendly Bovada Poker room is combining them both to give players the opportunity to win a trip to Las Vegas valued at $10,000 by placing bets on World Cup matches.
Taking part in the promotion is easy. All you have to do is place a bet on any World Cup soccer match in Bovada´s Sportsbook. For each bet you place, you will be awarded a ticket for special World Cup freeroll tournament that takes place each Thursday and Sunday from June 14th to July 12th at 7:30pm (ET).
The top fifteen players in each Thursday night and Sunday night freeroll tournament will win $20 in cash and, if you finish in the top three places in any freeroll tournament, you will qualify for a World Cup Freeroll Final Event on Sunday July 15th at 7:30pm (ET) with the following prizes up for grabs:
- First: $10,000 Trip for Two to Las Vegas.
- Second: $1,000.
- Third: $500.
- Fourth: $200.
- Fifth to Tenth: $100.
In addition to the Las Vegas trip and cash prizes, each of the twenty-seven players who qualify for the World Cup Freeroll Final Event will be awarded a tournament ticket to use in any scheduled MTT tournament with a $55.00 buy-in on Monday July 16th.
Special Offer for First Time Depositors
If you do not yet have an account with Bovada Poker, in addition to being eligible for the Bovada Poker bonus when you make your first deposit, you will also be given a ticket to play in any Thursday night or Sunday night World Cup Qualifying Freeroll.
If you don´t qualify for the Final on your first attempt, all you have to do is place a bet on any World Cup soccer match on or before July 7th (the Quarter-Final matches) in order to receive another ticket to a Qualifying Freeroll and have another go.
This offer will likely tempt both new players and players on Bovada Poker´s sister site – Ignition Poker. Although players on Bovada Poker and Ignition Poker share the same software and play together on the same network, Ignition Poker does not offer a Sportsbook facility.

Remember, your bet in the Bovada Sportsbook does not have to be a winner in order to get a seat in a World Cup Qualifying Freeroll Tournament. So, although it would be nice to boost your bankroll with a $20 bet on a longshot correct score, the outcome of the bet does not affect your opportunity to take part in this promotion and potentially win an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Las Vegas.
